As 2017 transforms into 2018, I’m scanning the horizon with all my needles by my side: machine; interchangeables; and tapestry!
2017 brought: the Edinburgh Yarn Festival; the Indieburgh Craft Crawl in Edinburgh; the Perth Festival of Yarn; Yarndale in Skipton, Yorkshire; Meet the Maker at the Dovecot Tapestry Studio in Edinburgh; and the EYF Wool Tribe’s Christmas Knitters’ Party. There were visits to Glen Affric in the Highlands, the Serra da Estrela National Park in central Portugal, Lisbon, London, Iceland, the Faroes and Catalonia. I also further developed my tapestry skills with visits to the Wemyss School of Needlework in Fife and Lorna at Stitchbirdie in West Kilbride.
2018 is going to be just as busy if not more so. The Edinburgh Yarn Festival will kick off proceedings in March. The prospect of this now three-day event is both exciting and yet terrifying! Travels planned so far involve Shetland next week and a hiking & knitting tour to Iceland in June. Not sure which is going to need more woollies!
Thank you very much for following Woolly Originals over the last twelve months. Your support and your encouragement are very much appreciated.
Here’s to 2018, and whatever it may bring!
